    ★★★★½

    Nothing to add to what's already been said elsewhere. A real shot in the arm for horror which can only bolster the genre.

    The Purge: Anarchy

    ★★★½

    Despite the Purge movies having a lacklustre premise this effort was mostly entertaining. The movie had a low budget John Carpenter vibe where Frank Grillo was a cheap knock off Kurt Russell. Far far better than it had any right to be.

    ★★★★★

    A film that makes jazz watchable is quite an achievement and yet Whiplash makes it look easy. An engaging story with fantastic performances all round makes this a real audio and visual treat. Jazz has a tendency for overlong self indulgent solos yet this is actually one of this films strengths. it's only January and we already have a film of the year candidate - remarkable!

    ★★★★½

    An incredibly tense thriller with terrific performances across the board. Great cinematography and tight direction make this a film you won't want to miss but be warned it's not for the faint hearted.
